Denis Papin Bronzed Spelter Table Statue
Rare Nearly Impossible to Find Denis Papin Bronzed Spelter Table Statue. Perfect condition. Denis Papin was a French physicist, mathematician and inventor, best known for his pioneering invention of the steam digester, the forerunner of the pressure cooker and of the steam engine. Papin assisted the Dutch physicist Christiaan Huygens with his air-pump experiments and went to London in 1675 to work with the English physicist Robert Boyle. In 1679 Papin invented his steam digester (pressure cooker), a closed vessel with a tightly fitting lid that confines the steam until a high pressure is generated, raising the boiling point of the water considerably. 19 x 9 x 15. Expect to pay $395 or more for anything comparable to this remarkable piece in similar museum quality condition. Fred's Price: $295.
